SITUATION
Hollybush Cottage is situated down a quiet lane on the edge
of the village of Charlton, a few miles from the historic market
town of Shaftesbury. Hollybush Cottage is surrounded by fields
giving it a good degree of seclusion. The area is particularly
noted as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with far
reaching views to the hills of the Cranborne Chase. Hollybush
Cottage is freshly and tastefully decorated inside and outside
and is the perfect country retreat but less than a mile to the
north is the village of Ludwell which has a renowned village
shop, butcher, post office and farm shop. The thriving town
of Shaftesbury has a wider range of facilities and amenities,
including a baker, coffee shops and supermarkets, banks and a
doctors` surgery. There is a mainline railway station at nearby
Tisbury which is six miles to the north with services to London
Waterloo (journey time approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes).
Communications by road are good via both the A30 and the
A303 which provides access to London, the national motorway
system and airports via the M3.

THE PROPERTY
Reputedly a former Inn, Hollybush Cottage has been recently
upgraded, having been extended in the 1950s and again in the 1970s
to create a generously proportioned kitchen/family room with an
EFEL wood burner, painted wooden flooring and new windows.
This open plan room is the heart of the home, providing a
comfortable social living space with a good sense of light provided by
two sets of south facing French doors opening out onto the garden.
A further living room is on the ground floor, again with full height
french doors as well as another wood burner. Upstairs are three
double bedrooms and a large bathroom, all looking south over the
unspoilt, lightly timbered undulating countryside and the paddock
which belongs to the house. The best vantage point is the pretty
Juliet balcony in the master bedroom.

OUTSIDE
The garden has been carefully designed with several well planted flower
beds and a range of native trees including a copper beech. A new large
wooden summer house and a paved terrace create the perfect spot
for outdoor entertaining. A path leads down the length of the garden
which is mostly laid to lawn. There is a wood store and a larger shed
giving ample outdoor storage. A gravelled area has space for several
cars to park. The paddock lies to the southern border and is laid to
rough pasture with an entrance on to the country lane. There are bridle
paths close at hand which lead on to the Cranborne Chase

SPORTING AND RECREATION
Racing is at Wincanton, Salisbury, and Bath, golf at Blandford
Forum, Sherborne, Salisbury and Wincanton; theatres at Salisbury,
Bournemouth and Bath. Walking, cycling and riding in this unspoilt
part of Dorset. The property is within striking distance of the Isle of
Purbeck, with its rugged coastline and the New Forest to the East.
Poole and Bournemouth are within an hours` drive, offering exceptional
sailing and water sports at Poole Harbour.

EDUCATION
The area is particularly well known for its proximity to a number
of schools including Port Regis, St Mary`s Shaftesbury, Sandroyd,
Hazelgrove, Clayesmore, Bryanston and Gillingham School with its
well-regarded sixth form.
